Explorations of Life and Enlightenment

Welcome!

Blue featherMy name is David “Davidya” Buckland.

This site explores what it means to live life approaching, transitioning, and living in post-personal stages of development; what we often call enlightenment. These stages build on more familiar stages of personal development studied by psychology and biology.

I post articles as they arise, so please subscribe to receive notification of the latest.

This site began in 2007 and contains thousands of articles. During that time, my perspective has grown and I’ve changed how I see and describe our potential unfolding. This evolution continues. You won’t find a list of correct concepts or truths but ways of seeing the spiritual journey, oneself, and the world. Old articles don’t become wrong, I just add other perspectives. Use them to support your journey but don’t confuse a map with the road. Let your direct experience guide you.

And now, the latest blog posts…

Sensitive

Something we recognize over time is how much we’ve built up crusts and resistance to our experience of being human in the modern world. It’s like we walk around armoured up, careful about letting anything …

Ooops

A “major incident” took place at my web host early Saturday, taking down over a dozen servers and deleting thousands of web sites, including this one. Sounds like a hack. They had to do a …

Memory

Memory is a very curious thing. For example, there is a perspective in which everything that’s ever happened has been recorded. There is another perspective where nothing has ever happened. And another where everything we …

Templates

The level (kosha) of the intellect is one of relationship, also known as subtle or sacred geometry. Points of awareness create relationships that lead to geometry and structure. Sound modulates this, giving rise to form. …

On Anger

In correspondence, the topic of anger came up. Unresolved anger is a common issue for many, even if you’ve had a long practice. While the focus of this article is anger, the same principles are …

Moha, Delusion

It’s struck me how much of my old karma is directly related to past choices, often a decision to avoid something. And how so many people, even with conscious choice, will choose the dark side. …

On Anxiety

I’ve written occasionally on anxiety as it’s so prevalent in Western society. They define anxiety as uneasiness and apprehension about the future. Fear of possible change. Anxiety tells us we’re resisting. Like worry, it shows …
